    If you're a Muslim and you don't pray 5 times a day; you do know you're going to hell, right?

    I think its quite silly to make excuses if you actually believe in the consequences.

    And if you've ever done anything that could be construed as a sin; you're also going to hell for a while. That's pretty hard not to, so good luck living with that idea for the rest of your life.

    There's something called repentance! There's also forgiveness! If your good deeds are greater than your bad deeds, you go to heaven and your bad deeds are forgiven. That's islamic stance in a very simplified manner.

    The Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Allah, Blessed and Exalted is He, says, ‘O son of Adam, as long as you call on Me, I shall forgive you of what you have done, and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if your sins were to reach up to the clouds in the sky, and then you were to ask for My forgiveness, I would forgive you and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if you were to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth, and then you were to meet Me after death, not worshipping anything besides Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as the earth.’” [Tirmidhi]

    Allah will ALWAYS forgive you, he will ALWAYS have mercy on you and that hadith is beautiful, I have come across it many times and it really makes me love Allah so much. <3

    You've still got to pray matey. In Islam, when you repent, it also includes: acknowledging your mistakes, feeling sorry and trying your utmost to not repeat those actions.

    As I said above, I simplified it for you. The knowledge - surrounding this issue - goes deeper.

    It's embarrassing to admit but, I only pray when I want something. I think to myself before the prayer "No way is God going to answer me, I only do this when I need something", however I am told we shouldn't rule out what God will or will not do, surely Allah is the most compassionate.

    ...After praying, as expected, I do not get what I want and I just laugh at myself because I know I didn't deserve it

    During the weekdays I make sure I do. And I attend at least one prayer at the mosque if not two. Fajr during the weekends is difficult thought .

    I pray every night and I also listen to a nasheed every night. I still go to secondary school and I wake up at 6:55AM every morning. I really want to pray 5 times a day but I'm not sure how to go about it and what times? Also, do I have to pray during lesson? Thank you.

    Unfortunately not. I used to be very devout when I was 10-11, but slowly I've started slipping away from the habit.

    I hope I can go back

    A person who spends his time bent over and talking to an imaginary man is talking to me about "unnecessary."
    I'm not sure whether this statement is serious or not...
